Summary Creative processes are a dime a dozen; it's the strategies, tools, habits, and paradigms behind them that get the job done. By focusing on these elements, veteran author Curt Cloninger shows readers how they can inject a big dose of creativity into just about every step of any design project. Filled with beautiful full-color examples, the book provides a plethora of strategies, tools, templates, and practices that readers can apply to their own work. As readers make their way through the book's four major sections, they're given a grab bag of tricks to get their creative juices flowing.
